Ropes! Hand-plaited by Dr. Hugh McCampbell

Donated by: Dr. Hugh McCampbell

Ropes! Hand-plaited by Dr. Hugh McCampbell
Description: One round roping rein, and a pair of flat split reins. Both are nylon and are hand-plaited by Dr. Hugh McCampbell of Sweetwater, Tenn.

Hugh McCampbell has been making hand-plaited ropes and reins since he was a boy, and continued through Boy Scouts, veterinary school and in practice making foot ropes on the large animal surgery tables, stallion lead shanks, bull halters, etc. and also bull ropes for rodeo friends. McCampbell made a lot of kinds of reins, adding an eight-plait round portion to split reins, roping and barrel racing reins, and adding Spanish Rosebuds at appropriate places. He uses 1/4" white nylon in 600' rolls. "I tell folks that idle hands are the devil's workshop, and I sure don't want to risk that! So I plait all the time."

Item Value: $125
